Enzo and the Fourth of July Races

Enzo and the Fourth of July Races
In the newest addition to the Enzo picture book series, Enzo and the Fourth of July Races, Garth captures the excitement of the Fourth of July and the thrill of a car race as Enzo, Zoë, and Denny team up for the biggest race of the year.
For Enzo, the Fourth of July means three things: fireworks, family, and car races! This year Zoë is finally old enough to compete in the Kids’ Kart Challenge. But when one of the boys at the track says that girls aren’t fast drivers, Zoë gets nervous and backs out of the race. Enzo knows it’s up to him to help his family regain the confidence to compete on the big day.

Dear Reader,

I am a big fan of reading, first and foremost, so I encourage you to get your books any way you can and in any format you prefer: e-readers, hardcover, paperback, audio; your local independent bookseller, a global e-tailer, a library, borrow from a friend, read over someone’s shoulder on the bus. All are good.

That being said, I encourage you to support your local businesses. Sometimes we forget that the stores in our home towns weave together a fabric that enriches our communities; if storefronts on our Main Streets go dark, our towns will lose their vitality, and we will suffer as a society. So if you can pre-order my book from your local bookstore, you will be helping your community as a whole, and you’ll rack up double-bonus karma points which can be redeemed as soon as your next lifetime!

If you don’t have a local bookstore in your community, I would love it if you used the Indiebound website to find a local bookseller nearby that can assist you.
